Saxo Bank’s Morning Call has new interactive format

Maria Nikolova

Those willing to get a fresh perspective on what is going on across global markets may check out the live sessions with the experts from the SaxoStrats team.

August may be a rather dull month when it comes to new developments and significant news from Forex brokers. But multi-asset trading and investment services provider Saxo Bank has busted this cliché and has provided a pretty positive piece of news for those traders (and other market participants, of course) who would like to stay up-to-date with the latest market developments and to get an insight into what is coming up during the day.

The SaxoStrats Morning Call has a new format and a new home. Viewers are able to watch the team discussing market movements live via Facebook from Saxo Bank headquarters in Copenhagen. Traders can follow Saxo on Facebook to catch the daily updates at 09:15 CET. An archived version is also uploaded to every day shortly after the live stream.

The SaxoStrats team went live on Facebook with the new Morning Call format several days ago and the feedback has been positive as a whole, especially given the interactive format of the sessions, the improved sound and video quality. Then, of course, the live sessions add more human allure to the stream of information.

Traders can now join strategists like Steen Jakobsen, John Hardy, Peter Garnry, Ole Hansen, Christopher Dembik, Simon Fasdal, and others from the Saxo team as they track the movements of the previous day’s US and APAC sessions, go over the data calendar, give their thoughts on major market moves and trends, and prepare clients for the upcoming trading day.

Offering technical analysis of short- and long-term charts, viewpoints on the directions taken by central banks on policymakers, examination of cross-asset correlations, and long-term views on macro trends, currencies, equities, industrial sectors, commodities, bonds, and more, Saxo’s Morning Call is the key point of daily contact between Saxo’s experts and the broader public.

Saxo is pleased to offer real-time access to its chief economist and strategy team as part of its greater effort towards increased transparency, flexibility, and leadership in the field of online investing.

The Morning Call features real-time analysis from Saxo’s strategy team on the key factors, trends, and movements occurring in Forex, equities, commodities, and in fixed income markets. It offers a unique look into the minds of Saxo’s expert strategists.

To give you an idea on what the contents of these sessions are, let’s mention that the Morning Call edition on August 28, 2018, for instance, featured Saxo Bank Head of Equity Strategy Peter Garnry, Head of Commodity Strategy Ole Hansen, and fixed income specialist Althea Spinozzi discussing the strong session seen in emerging markets, the spike in both Italian bond yields and sugar prices, and the newly signed Mexico-US trade deal.
